[SOLVED] Can't make Page Pane appear

Postby Zollinger-Ellison » Fri Jul 13, 2018 1:37 am

I'm using OO 4.1.5 on Windows 7
A couple of days ago, I was working in the Draw program, and somehow I accidentally grabbed the Draw Pane from the side of the screen and moved it. It completely disappeared, and since then, I cannot get it back. I can click the "Page Pane" button from the "View" tab, and nothing happens. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling OpenOffice, to see if it would reset itself, but there was no change. Nothing has worked, and every time I open the program, I have no Page Pane.

First, ensure that you have View | Page Pane selected, with a check mark alongside it. Then, on the left border of your Draw window you should see a series of five dots one above the other - see red arrow in the image. If you have tips turned on, you'll see a tip "Show" when you hover the mouse pointer over the dots; simply click the dots to show the page pane.

I tried exactly that, but there are no dots to be seen.

I see on your attached picture that the Page Pane is switched ON in the View menu.

Just a tip:
Maybe you dragged it accidentally onto other side of the Window, or outside of the application window.

That too is a good suggestion. I looked all around my screen, though, and could find nothing. I even moved the taskbar to see if it was hiding out of sight behind that. Still nothing. :?

Try to reset (rename or delete) the user profile of the AOO.
